Eight-year-old Oliver’s kind-hearted donation

A kind-hearted schoolboy spent some of his holiday raising money for other children.

Oliver Stanley (8) bought toys for the children’s ward at the Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, for the third year running.

He raised a total of £150 with a raffle and a donation from Moulton Harrox Sports and Social Club which gave £50.

The tractor-mad youngster started his fundraising after spending time in the hospital three years ago.

He broke his femur and was in plaster for more than seven weeks. One leg was plastered from hip to ankle and the other from hip to knee with a bar between his knees.

“The staff at the Pilgrim were so good. Oliver played with the toys while he was in,” said his dad Justyn, yard manager at Fenland Tractors.

“He is a really kind-hearted little boy and the first thing he did was raise money for the ward,” added Justyn who is married to Sarah and they have older son Liam (22).
